CTV apparently will have live coverage beginning at 01:00 PST (that's the wee hours tonight). CTV is available OTA with a 1080i signal if one doesn't have cable.

Thanks. I love that sort of behind the scenes stuff.

I was expecting the stadium to fill quickly — looks quite empty with less than two hours to go. I wonder what's keeping people away? Is it the rain? Everyone expecting a huge crowd and electing not to go? The fact that no holiday was declared and people have to work? Or will it fill at the last minute? I wonder what's happening at the overflow stadiums right now?
